The Mission Chair for the Liberal Arts, in collaboration with the Minnesota Humanities Center, is hosting "Stand Out And Roar" (SOAR), an immersive two-day self-reflection and writing retreat. This retreat seeks to harness the power of storytelling to explore personal narratives that are symbolic of the tiger. Through self-reflection, peer to peer support, group discussion, and journaling, participants will shed light on their narratives and beliefs that shape their everyday lived experiences and SOAR. Allies and educators are encouraged to broaden their worldview by participating in this reflective experience of learning from stories that are foreign to their own lived experiences.
The event runs Friday, November 6, 5-9 p.m. and Saturday, November 7, 8 a.m–5 p.m.
A limited number of scholarships are available for faculty, staff and students. Apply here by October 25: https://forms.gle/nzEkxPb9Pbg7VEZZA
